Are There Underwater Pyramids?
Blog Introduction: A common misconception is that there are pyramids underwater. People often think that because there are so many mysteries surrounding the ocean, that there must be ancient civilizations and lost cities beneath the waves. The truth is, while there are certainly many unsolved mysteries surrounding the ocean, there is no evidence to suggest that there are any underwater pyramids.
The Pyramids of GizaOne of the most common examples given when discussing the possibility of underwater pyramids is the Pyramids of Giza. The Pyramids of Giza are a complex of three large pyramidal structures located in Cairo, Egypt. They were built between 2550 and 2490 BC and are some of the oldest and largest structures in existence. The fact that they have survived for thousands of years is a testament to their durability, but it also means that they have been subject to erosion and weathering. Over time, the sandstone blocks that make up the pyramids have begun to erode and fall away, revealing the limestone core. This has led some people to believe that if the Pyramids of Giza can erode and fall apart over time, then surely there must be underwater pyramids that have yet to be discovered.
However, the Pyramids of Giza were built on dry land and are not submerged in water. In fact, they are some of the most studied structures in existence and we know a great deal about their construction. We know that they were built with extremely durable materials that were meant to last for thousands of years. We also know that they were built on a bedrock foundation which helps to stabilize them and prevent erosion. The fact is, if there were any underwater pyramids, they would not have been able to withstand the pressure and would have collapsed long ago.
The bottom line is that there is no evidence to suggest that there are any underwater pyramids. The idea is simply a myth. While there are many unsolved mysteries surrounding the ocean, we know enough about engineering and construction to say with certainty that if there were any underwater pyramids, they would have collapsed long ago.
Every day, we see nature deteriorating at an alarming rate. The climate is changing faster than ever before, with serious consequences for all life on Earth – including us! Wanting to help, we created Roe Garden to help conserve and restore biodiversity, the web of life that supports all on Earth. By donating 10% of our profits to WWF, we’re able to make a real difference in the fight against climate change and its effects on our planet. What we didn’t know was just how much our little garden would grow. But we’re not giving up without a fight. With your help, we can make a difference!
